Tu B’Shevat, the 15th day of the Jewish month of Shevat, is a holiday also known as the New Year for Trees. The word “Tu” is not really a word; it is the number 15 in Hebrew.

At CBE we celebrate the birth of trees in a Tu B’Shevat Seder – a festive meal featuring fruits of the season. We also have kids programming to introduce them to the holiday and teach them the values surrounding Jewish environmentalism.
